Ghoulish Good Times​

Behold the annual howl-iday transformation. Beware as Oogie Boogie—the bombastic boogeyman from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas—casts a shadowy eye on those that pass by from atop his ominous, Main Gate marquee.

Along Buena Vista Street​

Spot marvelously menacing touches like clouds of black bats swarming Carthay Circle Theatre’s bell tower, the Headless Horseman statue and other dastardly decorations from beyond the grave.

Visit Radiator “Screams”​

Cruise into Cars Land to see all the car-stumes on display this Haul-O-Ween in Radiator Springs—which transforms into Radiator Screams for the season.

Halloween Screams Fireworks Spectacular at Disneyland Park:

Presented throughout Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, this wicked display is a true Halloween treat for Guests of all ages.

Your nocturnal delight kicks off with an eerie greeting from your “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington and his ghostly dog Zero—spirits from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. As Jack and Zero fade into the night leaving you to enjoy what’s to come, settle in and embrace the jump-worthy collision of sights and sounds—soaring flames, projections of rising ghosts and classic Disney villains like Maleficent and Ursula the Sea Witch—all set to a medley of Halloween-inspired songs… one showstopper after another.

Finally, as you reach the grand finale, there’s no need to be shy. Feel free to sing—or scream―along! Plus, on select nights, you’ll also be able to watch sparkling fireworks possess the sky.

Join the festivities as Frontierland hosts a very special tribute to Día de los Muertos! The holiday is a time to remember loved ones that have passed, while we embrace our eternal connections.

To commemorate the occasion, El Zócalo Park will feature iconic skeleton figurines called calacas—depicting a trio of mariachi musicians—as well as brightly colored flowers and other decorative items seen in traditional ofrendas on the Day of the Dead. You can even savor the traditional flavors of Mexico as you dine at nearby Rancho del Zócalo Restaurante.

From the authentic décor to delicious home-style dishes, you won’t want to miss this heartfelt celebration of Día de los Muertos.

Question about Adults in Costume.
I am hoping to get tickets and I'd love to dress up along with my kids.
It says no dresses that reach the ground.
Would I be able to wear this?? I have no idea how to wear a dress as Drizella if it is short?? Plus I don't wear dresses so wouldn't want to wear a short one anyway.

Definitely! You would totally be able to wear this. I've worn a huge Cinderella ballgown on different OBBs/Mickey Halloween Party and had no problem at all.

phew, ok great. When it said no full length dresses I was a bit worried.
My kids have decided they both want to be the Mean Stepsisters and no one wants to be Cinderella LOL, so I'll be Lady Tremaine now.
